Scenic The Hague Tips (28)

De Bijenkorf department-store

Too easilly people pass this one by. Yes, it's a department-store, and its main purpose is to sell you things. But even if you don't want that you might want to take a look. Because this department-store, De Bijenkorf ("the beehive"), is one of the country's big monuments of expressionist architecture. It was designed by architect P.L. Kramer, one of the founding members of the Amsterdam School, and built from 1924-1926, which makes it also one of the last big buildings of this style. The exterior is decorated with the works of a multitude of sculptors and other artists. This is more than just a building, it's a work of art.

Lange Voorhout in winter

Just recently visited the Escher Museum again and when i came out of the building and looked out into the Lange Voorhout i still found that such a great sight. I can't imagine how it must have been 2 centuries back with the horse-and-carriages instead of all those cars parked and driving along...

Next to the government center...

Next to the government center is an old dune lake. It has been 'cultivated' in the middle ages. In 1632 it got most of it's current shape. In 1924 they made it a little larger.
The view over the water is fantastic in almost all directions. Most of the buildings are of great architecture

The Royal lake (de Hofvijver), also known as 'the Pond' with the houses of Parliament.
The Castle of Floris IV was built on a dune beside this lake so that there was always a supply of fresh water. Canals were dug around the 'Binnenhof' for protection. Most of the canals were filled in but the lake remains and is fed by the river de Beek.

Pages'House, built between 1618 and 1628, is one of the few remaining houses with a 'stepped gable' in this part of the city.
It takes it name from the time the building was a boarding school for future squires. (Page means squire)

A little house

I found this little house in The Hague on queens night. In the old days people had to pay taxes according to the width of their house. That's why a lot of houses were built with very narrow fronts.
